Art heavily inhabits Superstudio Più spaces: right at the entrance with Flavio Lucchini's big iron and steel sculptures - distinguishing the Art Garden, a spacious conifer garden - and still at the Art Point, the new hall ideal for wide-ranging art exhibitions, such as the important single exhibitions of Omar Galliani, by Flaminio Gualdoni, Il Papero Rosso, by Vittorio Sgarbi, Bros, by Art Kitchen and the joint exhibition of Tradizioni temporanee by the Yunnan Art Academy and by Martina Corgnati and of Credit Suisse's Art & Entrepreneurship by Philippe Daverio.
Contemporary art, exhibitions by young artists, cutting-edge performances, innovative art events and video art are often displayed also in other halls, such as the picturesque and unusual Basement, an underground space ideal for alternative exhibitions.
In November 2005, Superstudio created a permanent space entirely devoted to contemporary art: the new MyOwnGallery.
MyOwnGallery is a new type of gallery, a "concept gallery", a place both physical and conceptual, that delivers contemporary art events, offers opportunities to brand new artists, works together with other galleries, scouts and promotes new selected artists, who fulfill precise criteria of quality, commitment, professional competence, edginess and research.
The gallery, placed at the Superstudio Più entrance, adjacent to the Art Point, occupies a well-lit construction on two floors, combining the old industrial architecture with a contemporary style building in glass and white concrete. An exclusive "window" also for out-of-town or international galleries in search of a location for special events, which can expand its 250 square-meter surface up to 7000 square meters, by exploiting the Superstudio Più adjacent spaces.
In April 2007, a new space devoted to art is opened in Superstudio Più. It's called art.box, the new on-the-street virtual micro gallery, joining in MyOwnGallery's activity. This place was created by turning a car garage into an art garage, overlooking via Tortona, at the number 27/bis and hosts installations, small exhibitions, art showcases - each time entrusted to a different artist or curator. At the same time, art.box on line presents the leading artworks and artists of the contemporary art scene.
In spring 2008, Superstudio became the main stage of (con)Temporary Art, the contemporary and temporary art circuit of via Tortona and adjacent areas. Organized by the M.A.T. Milano Altri Talenti association, with Gisella Borioli as artistic director, (con)Temporary Art is an art week, involving the locations and the galleries of the whole neighborhood with curatorial projects and site specific (single or joint exhibitions, performances, shows, live music, meetings with the artists, etc.), aimed at opening the doors to art and at breaking out of the mould.
Flavio Lucchini's atelier is placed inside Superstudio Più, in via Tortona, and can be visited by appointment only.
